I think this is similar in many countries: "Italian" food might be
sufficient for Italian restaurants in Japan, but obviously isn't for
Italian restaurants (and similar places that would be restaurants for OSM)
in Italy, just as "japanese" (and maybe "sushi") seems sufficient for
japanese restaurants in Italy, but in Japan you'd want to distinguish a lot
of different subtypes.

The best way is probably locals developping a tagging scheme for "their"
field. The only problem then would be cuisine types that don't exist in the
country of which they pretend to come from ;-)

cheers,
Martin
